All of the EK Success Alphabet punches. I might have used 10 of the letters once. Upper and Lower case punches and 10 numbers not to mention the question marks etc at the tune of 8.99 each. Alot of money. Sure glad for Cricuts and dies.

Oh, boy...I'm with you on the fastenator. Can't ever get the thing to put the staples where I want them.

The Big Bite...or is it a Crop a bite?? I've only used it once...and that was just playing with it to see how to use it...maybe if I gave it a chance and really worked with it....

Hmm...

Let's see...

Yes, I still use it (out of necessity), but (contrary to the reviews) would not only would I like my money back, but I'd like my hand not to still hurt afterwards.

I gave in and bought it for way too much from my LSS, only to have it crack soon afterwards!

(Eventually, I'll have to replace it with a new brand!)

mm 12 x12 trimmer (distresses everything, less than 2 years old, and their customer service SUCKS)
Martha stewart circle cutter (can't ever get it to cut a full circle)

Stephanie, just gotta ask...

Why not the Smooch?

(I don't have any, but considered buying some as well!)

TIA!

I just don't like the smooch. I don't think in the instances that I have used it that there is any shimmer or sparkle to it at all. The color seems bland and dull. Plus, if I'm trying to paint a piece of chipboard or something...that brush is so stinkin' tiny...it takes forever..just not worth it...especially not when I love my glimmer mist as much as I do and it is so much easier!!!

I have the MS circle cutter and I really like it. Don't use it much anymore...but as long as I taped down the piece I was cutting into a circle..then it cut really good. I only don't use it now b/c when I want a circle, it usually isn't big enough.

Thanks!!

Well..I never want to influence others by my likes and dislikes b/c everyone is different. There are sooo many people who just love the smooch and I feel odd b/c I don't...lol...but like everything else...our differences are what make us interesting.

LOL...being in a swap is what got me 2 of the unwanted smooch bottles in the first place!

I'd much rather hear the tried & true reviews!

Chances are if they are usually having trouble or not loving it, then the same might very well be true for others!

Also, that way, not only do I learn, but if I know that person, I can either enable them along or at least try to help talk em through it & or vice versa!
